Computer Administered Interviews – Cost effective, questions are more standardized, but interviewers can’t ask applicants follow up questions based on their answers. 5. Identify two ways an applicant’s human rights may be violated during a selection process. How would you prevent such violations from occurring? One would be asking too personal of a question or ones that intrude upon their personal lives. Doing background checks/credit checks without the applicant’s consent 6. Should HR professionals be concerned with the potential for applicant fatigue and attrition when designing a selection process? Why or why not? In a way, they should be concerned because they might be unknowingly asking the applicant some questions that they think might be violating their human rights. They would need to think about what questions were asked that made the potential applicant not continue on with the interview. Learning Activity 4.8
1. What are the three most important KSAs that applicants must have to be qualified for this position? Why have you selected these KSAs as most important? Lab Technician o Knowledge – must have a degree in Environmental Science, Chemistry or related fields o Skills – at least 6 months experience in running lab instruments commonly used in environmental labs, computer literacy, good time management skills, o Abilities – great problem solver, be able to work under tight deadlines, sound decision making, and be self motivated. 2. What selection technique(s) would you use to determine whether or not an applicant for this position has each KSA from Question 1? Interview – being able to meet the applicant personally and be able to interview them in a standardized manner. Pre-employment test – this could also be done during the interview to gauge how much an applicant knows about running certain instruments in the lab. 3. For each technique you chose in Question 2, explain why you believe it is a valid and reliable way to determine if the candidate possesses the KSA. 4. What kind of interview would be most effective in hiring for this position? Why did you select this kind of interview? It would be a structured panel interview – it is important to have this because the hiring staff might not have the necessary knowledge on how the job is carried out in the lab, so a more senior member and a supervisor in that department may join the panel for the interview. 5. If you interviewed three candidates for this position, how will you select among them? Granted that all candidates have flexible schedules and have a clean criminal/background records, I will select based on how much the can do/will do factors are weighted. Depending those priorities, that is how I will hire the successful applicant.
